‘Music and Taste of RB’ planned for April 27
By Elizabeth Marie Himchak
Music, food and assorted alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be featured at the third annual Music and Taste of RB next weekend.
The fundraiser benefiting Rancho Bernardo High School’s instrumental music program will be 1-4 p.m. Saturday, April 27 in Rosario’s Pavilion at Bernardo Winery, 13330 Paseo del Verano Norte, Rancho Bernardo. It is open to all ages.
“All are welcome to come,” said Audrey Frank, president of the RBHS Music Boosters. “It’s in a really intimate setting, where you can bring your lawn chair and listen to some good music.”
Frank said throughout the three-hour event the school’s orchestra, two concert bands, wind ensemble, and jazz band plus the Rancho Bernardo Community Band will perform.
Admission is free. Tickets are $10 for a food wristband and $10 for a wine tasting wristband. Beer and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Wristbands can be purchased at the event. Cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard will be accepted.
Frank said seven local businesses will serve various bite size portions of their foods. Those participating will be Barons Marketplace, Cafasso Meatball Company, Café Merlot, Hooters, Islands Restaurant, O’s American Kitchen and Which Wich Superior Sandwiches. Bernardo Winery will provide the wines, with up to five tastes allowed.
There will also be a silent auction featuring such items as a laptop computer, a signed and numbered framed print of Dr. Seuss artwork, golf packages, salon packages, piano lessons, portrait sittings and SAT tutoring.
There will also be a drawing for an iPad mini. Tickets are $5 each, available at the event and in advance by purchasing from an instrumental music student or contacting Frank at email@example.com. The winner need not be present.
“We’d love to raise between $10,000 and $15,000. That is our goal,” Frank said. “All the money goes to the program for coaching, music and field show. Every dollar goes to the kids for the music program.”
